You are viewing the Archives for 2007.......If you want the current page, CLICK HERE.......

We just got a message from a fellow blogger, Eric, who politely asked if we’d take a minute to inspect his site, and now we’re glad we did. Right at the very top of the page was an article about why the New Duranty Times is swirling the drain, doing its damndest to become the laughing stock of the NYSE.

It opens like this:

The Jayson Blair (aka New York) Times is on the verge of collapse. It is in free fall. It did not have to be this way. It seems that they followed the Palestinian business model for success.

…and it gets even better after that.

Welcome to the Dept. of Information, LC & IB Eric, and thanks for stopping by our humble Empire. Glad to have you on board.

    Just read Eric’s blog article. If this is true, I’m sure we’ll all be sorry to see it go, but if this is a self-inflicted wound, the people running the New York Times then have only themselves to blame for their present situation.

    My question is, will they be able to stop the bleeding? You guess is as good as mines.

    Who’s “we”, Kemosabe? I won’t shed any tears, and I may just buy a round at my favorite pub when they announce Chapter 11, or just close their doors outright.

    Honestly, I might feel a bit of sorrow at seeing one of my favorite, big-ass objects of ridicule disappear, but I’m sure I’ll get over it right quick.

    It’s not like there’s a shortage of imbeciles in the world for me to make fun of, after all.

    To Trooper,

    I meant in the sense of a once respectable paper, not the sad joke it is now.

    I wonder when the stockholders are going to intervene. I cannot imagine all of them are left of Lenin AND willing to see their investment evaporate.

    To Mark6591,

    I think that depends on whether they’re all far left libs, and if they aren’t, if they know that their investment is sinking. If they aren’t moonbats and they have no idea that its sinking, they better find out, quick.

    The problem with counting on the stock holders to do anything is all the voting stock is controlled by Pinch and his family. The rest of the stock holders are powerless peons.

    There are both NYT A and B stocks. It appears only the B stock is majority sulzburger held (but this is hard to tell w/o knowing who is who).

    http://www.nytco.com/pdf/2007_Proxy_Statement.pdf

    See page 9 of the filing. It appears the bulk of the A stock is held by major investment banking houses, which are very unsympathetic to seeing their investment lose 40% of its value in 3 years. Anyway, it does not require a majority to file a lawsuit that could burn Pinch’s ass and force change in management.

    I just wanted to give a hearty thank you to the Rottweiler. The positive feedback I received about the Jason Blair Times was a direct result of his promoting my article. Unless there are life changing world events on Monday, my column will be a list of thank you’s to those who have helped my blog grow. I am humbled and grateful for the support.

    Thank you again Mr. Rottweiller.
